Q. What is the right faith?

Q. What is the right faith?

A. People, not believing in the people around them such as their parents, friends, neighbours and so on, have a strong belief in Buddha, or God which they have never seen and can’t see, offering handsome donations. What is more interesting is that people never think that they were cheated by Buddha, or God when their prayers don’t come true, whilst they feel betrayed when people do not do as they want them to; refuse their requests for favours, or don’t keep their promises. When they fail to get their rewards from praying to Buddha or God, they blame themselves, ascribing failure to their scant prayer, rather than blame God, or Buddha. All these are the results of blind faith which happens when we don’t know what we believe in. This is far from the right faith.

The Bible says that we should love our neighbours as ourselves. The Sutras say that we are all Buddha and that there is nothing that is not Buddha.
The right faith is to love and respect people in the same way as we worship God, or Buddha and give the same faith to them as you give to God, or Buddha.
